apan is a fascinating country! 125 million people in a country only slightly larger than New Zealand, and just as mountainous. We've all seen the TV footage - cramped housing, industrial haze and crowded trains - but what about 'the real Japan'? Spectacular mountains, twisting rivers, hidden harbours and rugged coastlines. This is the story of Craig McLachlan's 99 day walk from one end to the other in search of 'the real Japan'. 1993 - what a year to do it! The year of the endless rainy season! The year without a summer! The year of earhtquakes, tsunami and typhoons - and sore feet! This is one of five books available on Amazon about McLachlan's various adventures in Japan. He has also climbed Japan's 100 Famous Mountains in record time (78 days!), hiked the 88 Sacred Temples of Shikoku Pilgrimage, journeyed around the Saigoku 33 Temples of Kannon Pilgrimage, and trekked from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean climbing all Japan's 3,000-meter peaks along the way.
